Have you forgotten?
I was on my way home from work listening to the radio when the first announcements about the World Trade Center being attacked came in around 8:50AM. The initial report I heard claimed that a small single-engine plane had crashed onto the roof of North Tower (1 WTC). When I got home just a few minutes later and turned on the news I was saddened to see the horrifying truth.
My wife came in the living room to see what was happening and she asked what I thought about it. I said I had a gut feeling it was terrorism in spite of what they were stating at the time that it was a tragic accident. She looked at me in disbelief and asked if I was sure. Then from the right side of the screen we then saw the second aircraft come into view and strike the South Tower. My fears were then confirmed.
Keep this in mind as we remember our friends and loved ones who perished: democRATs saw the attacks by AlQueda during the 1990s as a law enforcement issue and not as a threat to national security. Karl Rove put it best when he said, “Conservatives saw the savagery of 9/11 and the attacks and prepared for war; liberals saw the savagery of the 9/11 attacks and wanted to prepare indictments and offer therapy and understanding for our attackers.” They hate the fact that he was 100% correct.
